Plot Synopsis

CRIKEY! IT'S THE IRWINS is a one-hour reality series that follows the Irwins -- Terri, Bindi and Robert -- as they work thoughtfully and tirelessly to carry on Steve's mission to bring people closer to animals and ignite the connection that ensures an abundance of wildlife for generations to come. From running Australia's largest family-owned zoo, Australia Zoo in Queensland, to crisscrossing the world protecting and celebrating the most wondrous animals on the planet, viewers have a front row seat to the sights and sounds of their thrilling wildlife adventures around the globe and the amazing animals that continue to inspire their conservation efforts. In this series, the Irwin work together to care for more than 1,200 animals at Australia Zoo; overseeing a world class wildlife hospital, the largest of its kind in the world; and conducting high-octane global expeditions. Animal Planet audiences ride along with Terri as she propels Steve's conservation mission forward, which has included expanding the once two-acre Australia Zoo into a world-class 750+-acre zoo with 105 acres open to the public. Bindi, now 20 years old, focuses her passion for animals at Australia Zoo's Wildlife Hospital, Australia's best equipped wildlife treatment facility which rescues, rehabilitates and releases sick, injured, or orphaned native wildlife. Robert demonstrates a curiosity, deep knowledge and expertise for all the animals around him, as well as an infectious enthusiasm to share this experience with others; a memorable trait often showcased by his father.

In the series opener, "Steve's Legacy Continues," Robert -- after months of croc wrangling training with Steve Irwin's best friend Wes -- takes the final step in his journey to feed Graham, a huge crocodile at the zoo's famous Crocoseum. Originally rescued by Steve, Graham is the Zoo's largest and most volatile big croc, with a history of dragging Steve Irwin into the water during a routine capture, and separately injuring Wes with a surprise death roll that left him hospitalized. Bindi helps tend to Cedar, a rescue koala that has given birth to a rare set of twin joeys who must now survive the 6 to 8-month period before they can leave Cedar's pouch. Bindi and the zookeepers face ongoing challenges to keep the twin joeys alive as nature and survival of the fittest comes into play as one of the rarest types of koala pregnancies leaves the two joeys struggling and fighting for life.
